Andrew Breitbart once made a remark along the lines of,
‘If you can’t sell Freedom and Liberty, you suck.’
Dear GOP: You suck.
(And yes, I understand that there’s a mirror out there waiting for me)
I am forced to say that, because, if you do understand Liberty, Individual Rights, the Constitutional Rule of Law, then you’d also understand that “Full Repeal”, IS to replace ObamaCare with the most superior option available: being at liberty to find the services, care, associations, charities, to be offered and chosen, in a free market.
There IS no better option available than that. There is no more moral system available, there is no more inclusive system available, and there is no more efficient system available. To give ‘careful consideration‘ to all other available options, is to not understand the best available option!
The blatantly obvious, and supremely depressing fact is, that ‘The Right’ in general, and the GOP in particular, do not fully understand this, and so they have little enthusiasm or commitment to, capital “L” Liberty. Sure they like the sound of it, it has marketing utility for them, but they do not ‘get’ it, and so they can’t sell it, and worse, Americans as a whole are obviously not clamoring for it, or the politicians would at least put more effort into faking it.
To recap: Repealing ObamaCare IS replacing it with a vastly superior option – the Liberty to act in a Free Market – and going any further with tweaking regulations, adding laws, manipulating taxation, forcing options and ‘choices’ upon patients, doctors, insurers and other providers, is restoring all of the essential evils that was, and is, inherent in Obamacare.
For my friends on the Right, a far more important question than the spastic ‘Why was Trump elected?!‘, is ‘Why is this being accepted?‘, and until that is understood, your complaints about Trump, RINO’s and the Left, are pointless.
(Libertarians: pipe down and keep your two cents, most of you suck just as bad or worse at it.)
